Today, R&B star on the rise Skylar Simone debuts the official visual for her latest single “Shut Up.” The video continues to build momentum for Skylar as she’s set to release her highly-anticipated EP Shiver later this summer. Listen to “Shut Up” and watch the alluring visual HERE.

“Shut Up,” out now via Def Jam Recordings, is quintessential R&B, showcasing Skylar’s vocal range as she effortlessly switches between full-bodied belts and a high falsetto register. The track, fairly stripped down in composition, incorporates a sparse, silky backdrop that keeps the tempo and a bass that complements the sultry nature of Skylar’s voice and the song as a whole. The simple yet stunning visual, lustrous in every way, is set on a beautiful metropolitan skyline and finds Skylar displaying her innate charisma.

Shiver, produced by the legendary D’Mile (Bruno Mars, Silk Sonic, Victoria Monet), Scribz Riley (Doja Cat, 21 Savage), and Trackside (Khamari), is a testament to Skylar’s artistic growth and evolution. Exploring themes of love of another and the self, and acting from a place of heartbreak and confidence—as well as finding the latter through the pain of the former—the project embodies the contrasts of human emotion, inviting listeners on a visceral journey of self-discovery. Each track showcases Skylar’s range and prowess as both a vocalist and a storyteller.

Skylar is ready to take the world by storm in 2024. A self-taught instrumentalist with a striking voice to match, she’s a star on the rise poised for mainstream success. Stay tuned for more from Skylar.
